The Kansas City Chiefs will be adding another option in the passing game in the Divisional Round this postseason. The Chiefs have announced the return of second-year wide receiver Skyy Moore to practice as they've designated him as ready to return from injured reserve.

Moore has been on IR for the last several weeks and hasn't played in a game for the Chiefs since December 17 when he was injured during the team's win over the New England Patriots.

Moore has been out with a knee injury since Week 15 and his late-season placement on IR led some fans to wonder if Moore would simply shut it down for the year given his lack of consistent production when healthy along with the injury. However, just last week, Chiefs head coach Andy Reid stated that Reid was "doing a great job" in rehab and that he was "on track" to potentially return.

The second-year wide receiver is apparently on track to return from injured reserve for practice this week.

Moore was a second-round pick for the Chiefs in the 2022 NFL Draft class that netted the team so many defensive starters. Unfortunately, Moore has been slow to develop chemistry with Patrick Mahomes and the production simply hasn't been there despite plenty of opportunities. Last season, he had 22 catches for 250 yards in 313 offensive snaps. This year, he's played in 495 snaps, even with the injury, yet put up only 21 catches for 244 yards.

It will be interesting to see how the Chiefs shift the roster around when and if they decide to place Moore back on the active roster.
